Computer: Mouse: Side Effect
Swiss Army Mouse   (+1)  [vote for, against]
Save (a little) space

I've often wondered how much of the mouse is actually used. Given the size of technology these days, I would suspect that the largest part of the mouse (besides the body) is the rolling ball. I'm sure the body could be cut out to have lots of other cool stuff in it.

Here's what other bakers want:

Mini Post-It Notes - ghillie
Liquid Paper - krelnik
Tape Dispenser - DrCurry
Paper Clips - DrCurry
Pens - jonthegeologist
Stapler - DrCurry

Sounds good to me. Hopefully it won't be in that ugly red color with a weird looking cross stamped on top.

Another kind of Swiss Army Mouse

only if it's the original Liquid Paper (or Tipp-Ex in the UK) that had decent solvents in and smelt good. None of this environmentally friendly water-based rubbish.

Lol, this makes me think of the mouse I designed in my younger years that in addition to containing a digital camera, could also extend a variety of wheels and propellers allowing it to turn into a miniature land/sea/air RC vehicle.

I can only imagine the "fun" one could have with something like that in an office...

As for the ideas of adding a cell phone, it might be better to just go the other way and have a cell phone with mouse functionality (Camera doubles as optical sensor).
